KUALA LUMPUR: Naza Prestige Bikes Sdn Bhd has ceased operating its Harley-Davidson dealerships following a decision by the American motorcycle maker not to renew its dealership agreement with the local company, which is part of the Naza World Group.
Harley-Davidson said it is looking for a new distributor with immediate effect and will honour all valid warranties through the new dealers.
"We are already in the process of looking for partners to open new dealerships.," said Harley-Davidson Asia in a Facebook post. "Customers will be able to get their motorcycles serviced at these new locations when they open. We will make the announcements at an appropriate time."
The media buzz is that the owners of the tony Gasket Alley in Petaling Jaya, where Moto Guzzi and Zero Engineering custom bikes are showcased, could become the new Harley-Davidson partner.
Naza Prestige Bikes has held the Harley-Davidson franchise since 2008. Harley-Davidson said the move to find a new distributor was aimed at "refreshing our dealership network in Malaysia."
In the meantime, Harley owners can get in touch with the motorcycle maker via AEMenquiries@harley-davidson.com for any service and warranty related inquiries.
Naza World Group said it will focus on its other premium two-wheel brands such as Indian Motorcycle, Ducati, Aprilia, Piaggio, Vespa and Naza-branded bikes., following the exit of the Harley-Davidson brand from its portfolio.
